Hi, throat infection causes blockage of Eustachian tube opening in pharynx. Which causes numbness or feeling of blockage in ear. And causes ear pain. Once throat infection is reduced ear pain will reduce automatically. If you are not taking antibiotics start that. Do salt water gargling twice daily.Consult general physician for furthur evaluation and treatment.
